  No, this is intentional. The build system installs static
libraries in a subdirectory of $prefix/lib by default, as shown in the
output of ./configure --help.
  If you want to link against them, you need to give appropriate
options to ./configure. So, in your case:

  For execline, you'd add

  For s6, you'd add
  --with-lib=/usr/local/stow/skarnet/lib/skalibs \

  And for s6-rc, you'd add
  --with-lib=/usr/local/stow/skarnet/lib/skalibs \
  --with-lib=/usr/local/stow/skarnet/lib/execline \

  That's impractical, but a clear separation of build-time files and
run-time files is worth the small inconvenience.
  Alternatively, if you don't care about this separation and simply want
everything in /usr/local/stow/skarnet/lib, you can say so at
time, by giving the following option to every ./configure in the stack:


  which will achieve what you're looking for.
